The Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo in Taormina was like being in heaven. The views are breathtaking overlooking the Ionian Sea on one side and snow capped Mt Etna to the other. We had no problem finding the hotel in the middle of the night using GPS. Ask the hotel for directions to the preferred parking lot below prior to arriving.... More

The Timeo is one of the most attentive hotels we've stayed in. The slippers put out during turn-down service come in different sizes, and there was always a larger pair for my (male) feet than for my wife's. I don't know how they knew who slept on which side of the bed, but with four nights there I doubt the... More

The hotel is well worth the expensive price, as the views over the countryside to mount Etna are to die for. The terrace restaurant makes the best of the views, and the food is very good. Our room was I the roof of the annex building which is 2 min walk from the main building up a drive. The room... More

While we were not guests at this beautiful hotel we were made extremely welcome from the minute we entered the gates to when we left. We sat outside drinking cocktails and enjoying delicious canapes while overlooking the bay which was truly spectacular. The staff were wonderful, the gardens delightful and the experience truly memorable. When the sun went down we... More

It was a real pleasure to stay in this hotel for three nights. We were upgraded to a Triple Room as were our friends we were travelling with which was just as well........It had no view, but you can get that from the Terrace of the hotel. What it did have, however, is two bathrooms which, as any married man... More

We stopped in after a tour of the town to have a look at this elegant "Grande Dame" with awesome views over the bay. Although we were not guests the staff was very friendly and after looking at the menus, we decided to book dinner later in the week for our last night in Sicily / our friend's birthday. Yes... More

This hotel is one of the most opulent yet manages to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The views are breath-taking, Etna changes every day! We were lucky to be given an upgrade and the room was very spacious, good air-con and spotlessly clean. Yet, it is the staff members who make this hotel so wonderful. Our holiday was perfect due...

This hotel was a true gem in a trip that abounded in them. Location, just below the ancient Greek theater, and with fantastic views to the south toward Mt. Etna, and yet within steps of the quaint town, can't be beat. Hotel staff were wonderful, with the concierge Stephane a special standout. The breakfast buffet was delectable, and the view... More

What can I say about this amazing hotel, from the level of service to the incredible views - the Grand Hotel Timeo simply blew me away! After being picked up by our driver, we were transported through the tight streets of Taormina to this beautiful hidden gem. After a wonderful greeting by the Belmond staff, the head concierge Stephen personally... More
